: CITY OF BIRMINGHAMORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Cave. Conductor, Leslie Heward. Albert Sammons (violin)
ORCHESTRA
From the Town Hall,
Birmingham Delius 's Violin Concerto is dedicated to Albert Sammons , who was responsible for the editing of, and certain important alterations in, the solo part. As in the case of Eigar's Concerto, Sammons has made this concerto his own and he remains its greatest interpreter.
The Concerto is in one continuous movement which, however, splits up into three sections in contrasting tempi. The presentation and development of the thematic material, which is made up of a a number of short themes described by Sir Donald Tovey as a continuous ' stream of ruminating melody ', is very characteristic of the composer's highly individual and poeric style.

: King Henry V

by William Shakespeare. Produced and adapted by Howard Rose
Perhaps the most popular of Shakespeare's historical plays, and certainly the most suitable for broadcasting in the week which includes St. George's Day, King Henry V is this afternoon presented by a powerful cast. However modern opinion may rate the motives which took the King to France, there is no question of his supreme courage and resolution when he got there ; and on these aspects of his hero's character Shakespeare concentrated a magnificence of poetic phrase which equals all but his own highest achievements elsewhere in the plays. Falstaff being dead. the undertow of comedy carries Fluellen to the foremost place among the minor characters. Most of the choruses have been retained, and the addition of a narrator's part simplifies the presentation.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
